If the switch sometimes works and other times doesn't - the switch probably needs to be replaced. You could try to spray electrical contact cleaner into it to try to blast any dirt out of it - but short of that, replacing the switch will probably be needed.

Many "big box" and hardware stores have some form of this. Do not use any oil or lubricant.

Good luck!

    I had the transmission fluids changed and the next time I went to use the cruise control it wouldn't work.

    I press the control on button and the cruise control will light indicating that the cruise control is on, then I press the set button to activate the cruise control and nothing happen, but sometimes it will go on.

    Hmmm.. intemittant problems are the hardest to figure out since they can not be consistently duplicated. I still suggest cleaning the "set" switch with contact cleaner, and go from there.

SOURCE: cruise control not working....help!!!!

ok, this is a issue with the module under the hood. its malfunctioning. i recommend taking it to a mechanic so they can replace the cruise module assembly. this is the device that actually initiates the throttle action. its malfunctioning.

tacho, ECM, Speedo (road speed ) all of which have to word as any one not working will not allow the cruise control to work
run the fault codes and take it to an accredited service center for testing

I've been having problems with my cruise control, 2006 Ford Fusion SE. Sometimes it will set correctly and sometimes it doesn't. At times if I brake hard I can hit the off button and it will set...


cruise controls are funny things
you have to accelerate to a speed then turn it on and press set
It will cruise at that speed
if you touch the brake it will unset and you will have to press on the accelerator again to the speed and pres resume
if you want to accelerate to pass just press the accelerator until you have passed , then just take your foot off the accelerator and it will coast until the set speed
if you change gears , it will unset
if you touch the brake , it will unset
if you have it set and find the speed to fast , hold the set button and it will slow down to the speed you want
let the button go and it will set at the speed
if you want to go faster than the set speed press the resume button and it will speed up until you get the speed you want
from your description of the problem , it appears that you have misread the instructions in the owners manual

What are the functions of Resume &Coast buttons in steering wheel


If set at a specific speed and you have to slow down by hitting the brakes, The brakes turn off the cruise control. Pressing resume automatically turns the cruise control back on and accelerates to the previous speed setting. You can also use it to accelerate and by releasing it the new speed will be set.
